Frigid Start, Then Warmer

The coldest morning so far this season is upon us, as temps are bottoming out in the single digits and teens below zero. While winds are relatively light, any air movement will make it feel even colder. In fact, a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect for most of Southern Colorado through 9am. Wind chills will range from -15 to -25 on the plains, -25 to -35 in the mountains. Frostbite can occur in 20 to 30 minutes on exposed skin when it's this cold, so make sure you are dressed for the bitter cold this morning.

Temps will actually rebound quite nicely this afternoon under full sunshine. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s for most areas, while the Lower Arkansas Valley (La Junta on eastward) will be restricted to the low 20s.

After a mild day in the 40s tomorrow, you can expect a minor cool-down into the 30s on Thursday. Temps will return to the 40s thereafter, with no major storms in sight.

    Wish the parade was broadcast like it use to be. There are alot of shut in and seniors that can not stand out in the cold for that long or even be in the cold. How about bringing it back so all of them can see it not just on 11.2 or whatever it is.

    Anyone know if the parade will be broadcast on KKTV this year? Last year it was on 11.2 over-the-air if I remember correctly.
